Dr Adriana Mihaela Soaita

  • Research Associate (Urban Studies)

Biography

My research has focused on some of the ways in which housing and home are permeated by, and shape our ideas of, politics and power, trust and governance, space and place, emotions and embodiment. Through the lenses of residential practices––that is the ways in which housing is accessed, occupied and subjectively experienced––I have been particularly alert in substantiating the lived experience and the consequences of housing inequality. My research activities have been supported with £100,000 in prestigious fellowships, e.g. awarded by the World Bank, Dutch Government and King’s College London (ORS). 

I joined the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence and Urban Studies in 2017. Previously I worked at Tilburg University (the Netherlands) and at the University of St Andrews (very briefly also at the University of Dundee). I am also a chartered Romanian architect and planner with a prolific portfolio of residential and commercial projects. My postgraduate academic inquiry has been inspired by the encounters with the people I was designing for, whose narratives aroused my fascination with the multiplicity of meanings attached to housing.

  • PhD in Housing Studies (2011), King's College London.
  • MSc in Urban Housing Management (Distinction, 2004), Erasmus University Rotterdam and Lund University.
  • PG in Real Estate, Project and Property Management (Distinction, 2002), IHS Erasmus University Rotterdam.
  • BArch/MArch in Architecture and Planning (1985), Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism, Bucharest.

Research interests

I am interested in housing and the material home as a key site for understanding the dynamic and multidimensional processes through which inequalities are generated via structural determinants, social discourses, everyday practices and cultural mechanisms. This includes:

  • Meanings of home, homeownership and housing quality
  • Comparative housing systems
  • The Private Rental Sector
  • Housing options and Asset-Based Welfare
  • Housing and social stratification (‘housing class’, status, lifestyle)
  • Research co-production, systematic reviews, visual methodologies
